Contrary to the characters in my books, I don’t really kill people, or catch those who do, so the blog posts might be about reading, or writing, or animals. These are the things I have great passion for.

Thus Spake Bellavista: Naples, Love, and Liberty

Thus Spake Bellavista: Naples, Love, and Liberty - Luciano De Crescenzo, Avril Bardoni If you enjoy the humor and 'personality' of the Neopolitan people this is a must read! It is hilarious. I found myself laughing out loud too many times to remember. Luciano De Crescenzo is, at times, caustic and sarcastic, and at other times heartwarming in his telling of tales. For a 'philosophical' book, he has created magnificent characters who are easy to love and even ridicule, but a dry, biting humor permeates the book.

I have read it four or five times now and whenever I find myself needing a 'fix' of Neopolitan humor I pick it up and read it again.
